1 IPv6: Moving to Adoption John Curran ARIN President & CEO 17 May 2010

2 Quick History of the Internet Protocol 2 Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4, or just IP) – First developed for the original Internet (ARPANET) in spring 1978 – Deployed globally with growth of the Internet – Total of 4 billion IP addresses available – Used by every ISP and hosting company to connect customers to the Internet – Allocated based on documented need Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) – Design started in 1993 when IETF forecasts showed IPv4 depletion between 2010 and 2017 – Completed, tested, and available for production since 1999 – Total of 340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456 IP addresses available – Used and managed similar to IPv4

3 About IPv4 and IPv6 Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) Deployed 19811999 Address Size 32-bit number128-bit number Address Format Dotted Decimal Notation: Hexadecimal Notation: 3FFE:F200:0234:AB00: 0123:4567:8901:ABCD Prefix Notation Number of Addresses 2 32 = 4,294,967,2962 128 = 340,282,366,920, 938,463,463,374,607,431, 768,211,456 3

4 Available IPv4 /8s from IANA * * as of 9 April 2010 4

5 What We Know RIRs allocate, on average, 10-12 /8s each year worldwide There are 22 /8s remaining at the IANA as of 11 February 2010 Demand for IPv4 continues from organizations around the world 5

6 Remaining IPv4 /8s from IANA 6 IANA has allocated six /8s so far in 2010.

7 Situation Today, the Internet is predominantly based on IPv4. The Internet must run two IP versions at the same time (IPv4 & IPv6) - this is the dual-stack approach. 7

8 RIRs have been allocating IPv6 address space since 1999 Thousands of organizations have obtained an IPv6 allocation to date ARIN has IPv6 distribution policies for both service providers, community networks, and end-user organizations 8

9 Call to Action Enterprise Customers Mail, web, and application servers must be reachable via IPv6 in addition to IPv4. Open a dialogue with your Internet Service Provider about providing IPv6 services. Each organization must decide on timelines, and investment level will vary. 9

10 Call to Action Internet Service Providers Begin planning to connect customers via both IPv4 and IPv6 now. Communicate with your peers and vendors about IPv6. Consider IPv6 when making purchases. 10

11 Call to Action Equipment Vendors There was probably limited demand for IPv6 in the past. Demand for IPv6 support will become mandatory very, very quickly. Introduce IPv6 support into your product cycle as soon as possible. 11

12 Call to Action Content Providers Content clients must be reachable to newer Internet customers. Begin planning to connect hosting customers via both IPv4 and IPv6 now. Encourage customers to use IPv6 and test their applications over it as soon as possible. 12

13 Government Actions Awareness Coordinate with industry Adopt incentives Regulatory Economic Support and promote activities Officially adopt IPv6 13
